Any local or visitor that has not yet enjoyed this mind-blowingly delicious sandwich is definitely missing something. Stop making excuses and plan a lunch date already!
The famous sandwich, known as The Conquistador, has moist and succulent chicken served with lettuce and tomatoes on the most delicious, fresh baked bread. THEN it is smothered with two tasty sauces.
The sandwich is not so large that you can't finish it on your own, but in truth, I've yet to finish one in one sitting. Which is kind of perfect since I absolutely love the treat of eating this twice in one day.
The only thing better than The Conquistador, is topping it with marinara sauce, sausage and parmesan cheese. And calling it The Godfather. It sounds like an awfully weird combination, but I assure you it is ridiculously good. 7
There are vegetarian options (anything with the grilled mushrooms is great!) and you can adjust the meal to suit your tastes because they make it right there in front of you.
Finding it can be a little tricky if you're looking for a full size restaurant. Zunzi's is essentially a small counter just inside the door of a brick building. You will usually know you are in the right place by the line down the sidewalk. Since it is just a take out service, you will have to plan where to eat. In the spirit of the South, you can always take your food a few blocks over to the cemetery and lunch with the dearly departed (a Southern tradition). If that is a little too weird, they do offer a few tables around the side of the building.
Parking in the area is pay-per-hour (though you never pay after 5pm or the weekends!!!) and hours can be a bit tricky, so make sure they're open right away.
